At the title states I want to remove NM from my system. I do not fell like I have the total control that I am used to having. RH uses scripts to start/restart/stop the network and that is what I am used to.
I am also wondering if I could import the RH network scripts?

What exactly is stopping you from removing it. If you need better replacement wicd will do.
Merry Christmas to everybody!

Here is my issue or my holdup if you will.
I am used to how RH does things. My network would be started from a script at boot time. RH does install NM but I remove it from the start as I understand how RH works and can get my network up and running in a short amount of time. Sabayon on the other hand is a learning curve. Things are done and started differently. I am still learning the ways of Sabayon but I do not care for NM. I am a CLI junky and that is how I update my system running Sabayon with equo. GUI's are nice but when it comes to the system I prefer the CLI.

Well, I know you can unmerge NM with
emerge -p --depclean net-misc/networkmanager
What I don't know is, what effects it will have, so issue that command and see what else it wants to uninstall also. I have never installed it so I don't know what kind of trouble you will run into. As far as setting up the Network via CLI, that should be a piece of cake. I can't really help with the scripts, sorry.

Thnx for you input. I was thinking about porting the RH scripts over and modifying them as needed.

It has been long time since I used RH, hmm ... 15 years now, are you saying nowadays RH has it's own way to switch between wired/wireless networks?

Not what I am saying at all.
